I want high heel Riding Boots!

#1 Post by Chill » Fri Jul 27, 2007 7:12 pm

Is that so hard? I saw those Icon Women's Bombshell Boots but they suck. I could really use a few extra inches you know. I'm already on my tip toes so I might as well look like I was trying to do it. :wink:

I have a pair! Actually I ride in them sometimes but they're deadly on the VFR in that there isn't enough foot print.
I think Tip has a pair also.
Alpine Star makes the Stella that has a 2" lift inside the boot. They seem to be pretty popular.
If you want to shave your seat you can probably loose about 2" in foam and replace with 1/4" of gel. That worked well for me.

no lie, I just saw a dude with high heel boots on, leather vest, leather thong and nothing else riding a motorcycle down Geary. He must be on his way to the folsom street fair I guess.

I couldn't wear them. As soon as I put my foot down, I'd end up twisting my ankle.

I have a pair of the Icon Bombshell boots. They don't have as much protection as I'd like it to, but I think they're pretty comfy and they do allow me to touch the ground (both feet on floor!)

They're not comfy to walk around in or take to the clubs, but they feel great to ride it. Have you tried them already?

Hey Tip, I have not tried them. I took one look at them and decided they didn't offer the kind of protection I want. I need to keep my skin as beautiful as I can :wink: .

I heard of the ones that give you a lift but they are not as cute as I want them to be. Therin lies the delima.

Scarlett, I was just thinking that I want to be cute on my bike you know.......and protected at the same time. ooh..and if they were comfortable too. Yipee!!

I'm just dreaming out loud. 8)

Consider motocross boots. They are hella protective, and often have a thicker sole than street boots.

I am selling a set of Oxtar Sunray boots, which also have a thick, height-assisting sole (and are waterproof, to boot).
